The New Day beat The Bar in the SummerSlam Tag Team tournament finals in this week’s SmackDown. The two teams have fought some incredible battles over the years and so were familiar with each other’s moves. It was a match in which the momentum shifted between the two sides on numerous occasions. There were multiple pin-down attempts from both sides and in the end, it was The New Day that prevailed.
The decisive moment came when Big E managed to lift up Cesaro despite being locked in a cross face and managed to get his opponent in position for the Midnight Hour allowing Kofi to drop the Swiss Cyborg. Another pin-down came and this time, the countdown was completed. The New Day now have a chance to face The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team Title.
Before that, Shinsuke Nakamura warmed up for his United States Title defence against Jeff Hardy at the SummerSlam by beating R-Truth and Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch beat the Iiconics.
